Ski routes

Sportgastein is a snowy paradise perched at 2700 meters above sea level. Long known as a freeride area, three “golden” routes are now also about to warm the hearts of all future freeriders: the Golden Ride Route at a length of 666 m, the Golden Rush Route with a length of 2,000 m, and the Golden Powder Route at a total distance of 5,000 m. All of these routes are in the intermediate difficulty range, their different lengths promising freeriding enjoyment for all ability levels, both for skiers and snowboarders.

Description The Golden Powder route is the longest in the ski area, with the ideal access point just below the mountain terminal of the Goldbergbahn lift. The end of this run feeds straight into the next route (the Golden Rush), allowing you to freeride all the way down to the valley.
